AJ Brown, WR
There is a very good reason why AJ Brown is an All-American wide receiver and projected as a 1st round draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Of course, Brown led the SEC in receiving in 2017 and will likely repeat as the SEC receiving leader in 2018. Thru the Rebels first two games AJ Brown has 15 receptions for 251 yards and 3 TDs. Like the rest of the NWO Brown is big, very fast and extremely reliable the WR position. Also Brown is one of the best route runners in the game and can create separation in space.
Tonight it will be interesting to see what Nick Saban and the Tide come up with defensively to lessen Brown’s impact in the game. Is Saban willing to commit his two best DB’s to slowing down Brown? Saban better had better hope to slow Brown down because the Tide secondary won’t be able to stop him. Brown will have a big night against the Tide but the distraction he creates when he is on the field will also benefit the other NWO receivers. While Brown may not finish the night as the Rebels leading receiver he will have the most impact.
